“There’s no greater challenge and there is no greater honor than to be in public service.” - Condoleezza Rice
In 2009, Missouri City residents elected Robin Elackatt to serve as Council Member District C. He ran unopposed for re-election in both 2011 & 2013.
The Elackatts chose to live in Missouri City and purchased their first home here in 2005. They selected Missouri City because both Robin and his wife loved it and felt this was a great place to live, raise a family, and work. Robin discovered his call to serve in his 20s, when he was elected President of the Chicago Knanaya Catholic Youth League (KCYL) in 1992-1994. He was also elected as the first President of Knanaya Catholic Youth League of North America (KCYLNA) in 1994-1995.
Prior to running for City Council, Elackatt served as the vice chairman and board member of the City’s Parks Board. He also served on the Colony Lakes Homeowner’s Association Board and was one of the past presidents of the Homeowner’s Association Board. From the day he took his oath of office, Elackatt has been a fierce advocate for many City initiatives, including the sidewalk repairs program to “Cut-and-Balance” the City’s budget, and adding the Police Mini-Station and Fire Stations to better serve the needs of his constituents.
Robin knows that there is much work to be done to ensure the future of Missouri City and to help make it the best city in the nation. He will work tirelessly to move the city forward. “Missouri City has continued to grow over the years since I left Council. With that growth
comes responsibility. We must continue to improve public safety initiatives, develop sound infrastructure and serve as good stewards of the city’s finances.
Robin Elackatt owns a small business within the city and his wife Tina is a Physician Assistant. They are the proud parents of two wonderful young daughters. The Elackatt's are members of St. Angela Merici Catholic Church.
